THAT is the PlayStation 5 controller, titled DualSense, as presented yesterday on the PlayStation blog.
It’s still wireless and along the new features we’ll find “haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.”
Strong battery life, lighter in weight, no “Share” button (implemented first by Sony in DualShock 4 – the PlayStation 4’s controller), but a new “Create” button feature that is “once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves. We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch.”
Built-in microphone array and ” a two-toned design. Additionally, we changed the position of the light bar that will give it an extra pop. On DualShock 4, it sat on the top of the controller; now it sits at each side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.”.
Sony said that they went “through several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years”
The reveal ends with a message from SIE President & CEO Jim Ryan to the community where he mentions that: ” I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020.”.
No pricetag, a precise release date, console design nor launch line-up are known as of now and everything you’ll read regarding those around the web are merely speculations. There are online stores that have a price for pre-orders but remember that these are only placeholders. You’ll know the exact price when it’s official announced.
